Rolled Sugar Cookies for the Holidays

By Sinea Pies

Cut-out sugar cookies have to be my all-time favorite holiday treat. They are most often seen as Christmas cookies but there are so many cookie cutter shapes available that you can have them year round!

I've tried many recipes but this one, by far, is the simplest to produce and tastiest, too! Here is the recipe and a really great how-to video for inspiration. You'll be baking like a champ the very first time.

Rolled Sugar Cookies

·        Sugar 1 ½ cups
·        Butter (softened) 2 cups
·        Eggs  4 large
·        Vanilla Extract  1 tsp.
·        All-Purpose Flour  5 - 5 1/2  cups
·        Baking Powder 2 tsp.
·        Salt 1 tsp.

Preheat oven to 400°
Cream together sugar and butter, in a large bowl.
Add eggs and vanilla extract, beat.
Stir in flour, baking powder and salt.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate 1 hour or more (even overnight)

Flour your work surface.
Cut the dough in half or thirds.
Roll out a piece of dough using a rolling pin, making the dough ¼ to ½ inch thick.
Tip: Keep counters clean - easy cleanup - with silicon baking mats.
Cut shapes out of the dough using cookie cutters.
Bake them on an ungreased cookie sheet, 1 inch apart, for 6 – 8 minutes until lightly golden brown on the edges D not overbake. 
Tip: I tend to burn cookies so I use AirBake Natural Cookie Sheets. 
Perfect every time!
Frost / Decorate.
